    RHEL version

    Hi all,

    I haven't worked much on Linux. Can anyone tell me as to how can I find out which RHEL is installed on a machine i.e . RHEL4 , RHEL 5......etc.

    I tried out the command ------
    uname -a
    but it doesn't give any such information

    Thanks in advance

    I'm no expert either but if you do uname -r that will tell you your kernel (mine is 2.6.9-22.ELsmp which is actually RedHat EL4, but if you Google your kernel version you should find what you need.

    I have already tried out this command:
    uname -r
    and the kernel release is 2.6.9-5.EL. But how do I find out from this whether it is RHEL4 (as u have mentioned) or some other version.
